Full description for The Landmark Herodotus
From the editor of the widely praised "The Landmark Thucydides," a new Landmark Edition of "The Histories" by Herodotus.Cicero called Herodotus "the father of history," and his only work, "The Histories," is considered the first true piece of historical writing in Western literature. With lucid prose, Herodotus's account of the rise of the Persian Empire and its dramatic war with the Greek city sates set a standard for narrative nonfiction that continues to this day. Illustrated, annotated, and filled with maps--with an introduction by Rosalind Thomas, twenty-one appendices written by scholars at the top of their fields, and a""new translation by Andrea L. Purvis--The Landmark Herodotus is a stunning edition of the greatest classical work of history ever written.
